My fiance had set up his camera with a remote under the pretense of getting a  new Facebook profile picture… so he had the most beautiful photo of us with the sunset behind, up on the roof of a historic theatre, him down on one knee with the ring out and me laughing. After we raced around and told everyone, I put that photo up and then a ring photo. Then my sister put up “my sister and her builder type guy are engaged! ” (family in joke).. cue an evening on Facebook while my brand new fiance slept off his nerves. (He hadnt slept since he bought the ring 3 weeks before)

My SO’s last name is a specific bird, so I was thinking about posting a ring picture/couple picture with the caption, “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.” From the Notebook!  I think it’s fairly clever and a little bit cheesy! Haha

I don’t do status updates but when Fiance and I got engaged we changed our status as a way to announce that we got engaged so that all of our friends and family would know. (We called/visited/emailed out closest friends and family with the news first) and then a week later updated our status with a picture with our fur-baby

We got engaged while on vacation, but didn’t post anything about it on Facebook until almost 2 weeks later when we were home. I said something along the lines of “My favorite souvenir from vacation is a rock!” or something silly like that. I went on to talk about how it actually happened, but people would have had to click on the post to actually read that bit. It was also the first time in over 2 years that we were listed as in a relationship together (heck, it took my friends wanting to friend him on Facebook for me to even friend him). We weren’t in it for the likes or comments, but we have a lot of extended family and friends (close family members were told directly before we posted anything) scattered all over the place, so FB was a simple way of getting the word out. Since then, I have rarely, if ever mentioned the wedding. As our guest list is limited, I’d feel like an ass posting stuff like “just mailed out our invitations!” when a good portion of my friends list wouldn’t be invited. Also, most people don’t give a crap about the details of other people’s weddings, so why clog up their newsfeed with that stuff?

Not massively creative but we added this photo at the same time on Facebook. It’s a picture a friend snapped the evening we got engaged

Not overly creative but wen’t down well (and was totally me) I brought one of these jumpers – https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/223576829/i-got-one-pullover-sweater-34-sleeve?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=I%20got%20one&ref=sc_gallery_2&plkey=7b694100612201c19ae324391af7183e1d4bb640:223576829 and took a picture of me wearing this as my profile pic 🙂 

I was a super waiter (even brought him a ‘how to propose to your girlfriend’ books as a pretty simple hint :P) so it was a totally me thing to say!

Zero creativity here. Me and DH rang/text family and close friends first. Then after about a week just changed our relationship status to ‘engaged’.

when we got married, friends had already posted lovely messages and pictures from the day. we just changed it to ‘married’ and I changed my name. 

Social media is about sharing but there’s a difference between sharing information with friends and making a big deal (eg silly pregnancy announcement photos/gender reveal etc). that becomes a bit ‘what can I do to get the biggest reaction?’ 

Seriously, you don’t need to plan ypur update in advance. You’re putting way too migh thought Ito it.

I just changed my relationship status to “Engaged.” My husband was the one who typed out a “get to marry my best friend” status and posted a picture of my ring lol.

I JUST got engaged.  My Fiance is very close to his family and we are actually on vacay with all of them this week.  I posted a picture of me with his neice and nephew and captioned it with “I’m going to be an aunt!”  My new bling is visible, but not the focus of the picture.  I thought it was cute and something a little different.

I am a fan of the “I said YES!” posts! Or to stand out, write something meaningful about your relationship, and that you cannot wait to spend forever with him!
